Three-nucleon bound states: Detailed calculations of3H and3He

  • Y. Wu
  • S. Ishikawa
  • T. Sasakawa
Progress Report


The works of the Sendai group on investigations of the properties of the trinucleon bound states3H and3He are reviewed in detail. For these mirror nuclei, results are summarized that have been obtained from rigorous solutions of the (Coulomb-modified) Faddeev equations for various realistic nucleon-nucleon potentials with inclusion of three-nucleon forces as well as chargeindependence-and charge-symmetry-breaking forces. It becomes evident that for most trinucleon bound-state observables quite reasonable results have been achieved.
